CMI Level 7 in Leadership Coaching & Mentoring

The Level 7 qualifications in Leadership Coaching and Mentoring are designed for managers and leaders who have the authority and responsibility for developing and implementing a coaching and mentoring strategy across the organisation. The qualifications require managers and leaders to build on their strategic management and leadership skills and to focus on the requirements of embedding the organisation’s strategy.


The Level 7 Award in Leadership Coaching and Mentoring will introduce you to organisational coaching and mentoring and develop your leadership skills.


A more extensive qualification, the Level 7 Certificate in Leadership Coaching and Mentoring gives you a broader knowledge of strategic coaching and mentoring skills within your organisation.


The Level 7 Diploma in Leadership Coaching and Mentoring is designed for managers. It builds on the learning gained in the Certificate and develops your understanding of coaching and mentoring policies and managing organisational culture and change. A Diploma in Leadership Coaching and Mentoring is the benchmark qualification for full CMI membership, taking you another step towards Chartered Manager status.
